Classics major Erica Choi is speaking at Princeton Research Day, a celebration of the research and creative endeavors of undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and other non-faculty researchers. The event is free and open to the public.
“Hecuba” is a lush and experimental rock-leaning album based on Euripides’ tragedy of the same name. Written around 424 BCE in Athens, Hecuba is a savage story of revenge in which the disgraced queen of Troy, Hecuba, with her city razed and her children murdered, descends from nobility to primal violence. A week before the national release on May 13, Oracle Hysterical will debut the album at Taplin Auditorium in Princeton, with a post-performance discussion featuring Brooke Holmes and Josh Billings.
Part band, part book club, Oracle Hysterical combines eclectic musical influences with literary breadth. All members of the group perform and compose, with each project developed collectively.
Please RSVP by Monday, April 23rd to firstname.lastname@example.org
Drei Söhne / Three Sons, followed by discussion with
André Laks (Visiting Lecturer in the Humanities Council and Oates Fellow in Classical Philosophy)

Drawing on his degree in the classics and years of writing and performing, Joe has created an award-winning 30 minute long composition which deconstructs the story of The Odyssey in song, invoking the spirit of the ancient Greek bards who originally brought forth the timeless stories of Odysseus and the heroes of the Trojan War, while making the poem and the circumstances of its creation accessible to modern audiences.
The Princeton Classics Club announces the first annual Princeton Certamen — a quiz-bowl with questions based on Roman history, culture, mythology, literature, and language. Hosting high school and middle school students from all over the country, the Club hopes to inspire passion for the Classics and the Junior Classical League (JCL) with a competitive yet friendly contest. Prof. Dan-el Padilla Peralta will deliver the keynote address.
This workshop will put classical reception studies in dialogue with recent work on queer temporality, exploring how queer notions of time and history that contest or complicate forms of historicism may enrich work on ancient sexualities and their receptions.
